Choose your privacy settingsPieter posted in "News, Privacy & security, Video". 2 years, 11 months ago
Today’s big news on Facebook is, of course, the simplified privacy controls which are being rolled out as we speak at http://facebook.com/privacy. The just turned 26-year-old Mark Zuckerberg personally announced them earlier today:
The number one thing we’ve heard is that there just needs to be a simpler way to control your information. We’ve always offered a lot of controls, but if you find them too hard to use then you won’t feel like you have control. Unless you feel in control, then you won’t be comfortable sharing and our service will be less useful for you. We agree we need to improve this. Today we’re starting to roll out some changes that will make all of these controls a lot simpler. We’ve focused on three things: a single control for your content, more powerful controls for your basic information and an easy control to turn off all applications.
If you don’t see the new privacy settings yet, just wait for a few more hours. You can already read everything about them on the explanatory page, or by watching this video starring The Zuck.
